  10. How can I hide the C++ tab because I never use it?
  11. How can I avoid Poseidon freezing when I refactor attributes with accessor methods?

    This is a known bug and occurs intermittently when using roundtrip engineering and refactoring from outside of Poseidon the source code for any attributes which hold accessors.

    Two workarounds are available. You can refactor the attributes from within Poseidon; for instance, copy and paste the attribute and accessors from one class to another. The other option is to not generate accessors with Poseidon's accessor generation functions when using roundtrip engineering. You may still manually create these accessors from inside Poseidon as long as you do not use the generation button or automatic generation from the Settings dialog; and you may likewise create accessors outside of Poseidon.

    This bug is on our fix list.
